During the Revolutionary War, David Smith served as a private of horse under the command of Capt. Robert Masefield, Col. or Maj. Reid, Col. Pickens, and under Capt. Burnet (?) and Capt. Lawrence in one or two scouts against the hostile Indians.[2]

On 17 Mar 1782 (or possibly 1783), he married Rebecca Lindley in Abbeville District, South Carolina.[3]

In 1807, David and his family moved from Laurens District, South Carolina to Walton County, Georgia.[4]
